|Description||This one-day event will enable Geography A level students to learn skills in writing up their Individual Investigation (also known as the NEA). Experienced examiners will offer sessions which will help students to think through how to focus on all the skills required to produce a first-class piece of work, drawing on evidence from the first assessment of the NEA in June 2018. A combination of lecture and activities will enable students to focus upon wriiting: • Aims and context, • Methodologies • Present their findings using a wide range of data presentation skills • Analyse their work and consider what makes strong analysis • Draw conclusions on the basis of evidence • Evaluate their findings.|
|Duration||One day event|
|Categories||Secondary, Sciences, KS4, Humanities, Out of school, Earth Science / Geology|
|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
Aims and outcomes
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
All GA resources and approaches have been tried and tested by teachers of geography and course evaluations consistently receive very positive feedback.
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
The course presenters provide strategies for short and longer term evaluation of success and in addition the GA’s Quality Mark framework encourages teachers to critically assess the teaching and learning of geography, identify areas of strength, and set future development goals to further capture the potential of all students studying geography.
|Follow-up activities and support||
The GA provides a wealth of supporting web resources, publications, journals, online CPD and a Quality Mark framework and process for supporting self evaluation.
